36 Hershey kisses (unwrapped)
1 TBSP Crisco shortening (NO SUBSTITUTES)
about 30 fresh strawberries
Wash strawberries and pat them dry on paper towels. Do NOT remove the stems. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. In a microwave safe bowl add chocolate kisses and Crisco--microwave on high in :30 second increments until kisses are softened and you can stir the mixture until smooth. Hold each strawberry by the stem and dip into the melted chocolate. Place completed strawberries on wax paper. Cool completely. Keep refrigerated.
